As many of the posts here have attested, our outlook is very much a personal one and there are few reasons not to go about shining bright even on a rainy day.
Very few instances are ever made better by giving in to the temptation of blaming external factors on our outlook on life. That some people prefer to act as if the whole world is against them is another matter.
Anyway, returning to the issue of shining bright even on a rainy day, we can list three basic considerations to support the idea.
1) Given life is testing for us all, why not attempt to lighten it a little by shining bright even on a rainy day?
2) Our ‘light’, that passion we have for life and the way we demonstrate this to the world need not be conditioned by dynamics beyond our control, especially the weather.
3) We risk to never shine brightly if we decide to wait for perfect outside conditions. Life is lived in the present, not at some unspecified time in the future.
Or not. To join the conversation here and share your thoughts on the topic of shining bright even on a rainy day, please leave a comment below.
